NON-DISCRIMINATION/INCLUSIVITY POLICY

The Oscar & Elsa Mayer Family Foundation is an equal opportunity organization.  In our activities as an organization, we do not discriminate in our operations or employment-related actions on the bases of race, color, sex, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, military status, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.  We are committed to diversity, equity and inclusivity in activities that include selecting members of our governing structures, our staff, volunteers, contractors, subcontractors, and vendors who are themselves committed to these values.

The Oscar & Elsa Mayer Family Foundation is an equal opportunity philanthropy.  In our activities as a philanthropy, we support organizations that do not discriminate in their operations or employment-related actions on the bases of race, color, sex, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, military status, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.  We award funds to individuals and organizations that are themselves committed to diversity, equity and inclusivity in their own activities and services.

The Oscar & Elsa Mayer Family Foundation also serves as a conduit for philanthropic expressions of members of the Foundation.  We provide limited funds for each family member to designate eligible recipients without input or approval, direct or implied, from the Foundation.  Because acceptance of a wide range of thought and values among our family members insures our own diversity, equity and inclusivity, we prefer, but we do not require, family members to select recipients that do not discriminate in operations or employment-related actions on the bases of race, color, sex, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, military status, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, and that are committed to diversity, equity and inclusivity in their own activities and services.
